Redwood School

Summary:

Redwood School is an elementary school located in West Valley City, Utah, serving grades PK-6 with a student population of 486. The school is part of the Granite School District, which is ranked 74 out of 100 in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Redwood School has a diverse student population, with a majority Hispanic student body (63.99% in 2022-2023) and significant percentages of other minority groups, including African American (8.64%), Pacific Islander (9.05%), and Native American (2.06%) students.

Redwood School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing elementary schools in Utah, with statewide rankings between 506 and 568 out of 509 to 576 schools over the past decade. The school's performance on standardized tests is significantly below the state and Granite District averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 7.4% of 3rd-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 46.2% and the district average of 35.2%. Redwood School's student subgroups, including Hispanic, English Language Learner, and Low Socioeconomic Status students, also perform poorly compared to their peers statewide.

Despite having slightly higher spending per student compared to nearby schools like Granger School, Hillsdale School, and Mountain View School, Redwood School's academic outcomes remain significantly below the state and Granite District averages. This suggests that the school may not be effectively allocating its resources to support student learning and achievement, and that targeted interventions are needed to address the specific challenges faced by the school's diverse and economically disadvantaged student population.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
